Having stayed in several places in the Lakes over the years, this was the best yet.
Standard of furnishing and bedding was very high. Nigel and Jane were lovely hosts who are genuine Lakes enthusiasts with excellent knowledge and most willing to share this. Breakfast was also very good.
Eskin Street is about 8 mins walk to town centre and benefits by being a little easier for (free) street parking (can be a nightmare when closer to town!).
No hesitation to return - thanks!

Great B&B run by a very lovely couple. Sue and Nigel are very knowledgeable about the area and keen for you to enjoy and love it as much as they do. The rooms are clean and bright. The breakfast has everything you want and Nigel is justifiably particular about his poached eggs...very good..and the toast and coffee keep coming until you are suitably fuelled for the day ahead. A new boiler had been fitted recently and our radiator had an airlock. ..within 10 minutes of our mentioning it Nigel was in the room sorting it out. This is a place you can stay with confidence not expecting any issues but knowing if any arise they will be dealt with swiftly. Thank you Jane and Nigel for a lovely weekend break.

We were looking forward to spending a few days in Keswick after a whirlwind tour of Scotland. Hiking, beauty and Beatrix Potter....what more could we want. We were very excited to stay at Clarence House based on the reviews.

The rooms were clean. But the bathrooms are beyond small. Almost unusable they were so small. Okay. But what was really lacking was a central room or library in which to gather, have coffee or a glass of wine and relax. The rooms were too small for anything other than sleeping. In all of our travels in Scotland, this was the first accommodation that did not have a library or central gathering social room.

A minor point, but troublesome, breakfast was only for a half an hour period. And another minor point, I swear the heat was regulated as we could not get it to turn on until a certain time.

The hosts were nice, although we basically saw only Jane. She is knowledgable about the area with recommendations for hikes, etc. But I must say we were disappointed and felt closed in. We wanted better, and we had had better all over Scotland. This was a disappointment.

Thank you Susie and Jeffrey, I'm sorry you found the King size deluxe room too small and that we did not have a library or socialising room for you to enjoy your glass of wine. There is a lovely seating area in the king size room with view towards Skiddaw to enjoy the afternoon sunshine. I'm pleased you enjoyed the walks I suggested each day and the drives around the Lake District. Jane and Nigel.

Jane and Nigel were great hosts and very welcoming with a good knowledge of the area. The location is very close to the town and lake. The room we stayed in had everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good too. Would recommend the Clarence to anyone.

Hosts were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and comfortable, breakfasts were fantastic and location was ideal; nice, quiet area and a 5-10 minute walk to Keswick centre. Would highly recommend to anyone and will definitely be coming back. Thank you Jane and Nigel!
